DID YOU KNOW?
Angelina Jolie was originally cast as the lead, but dropped out. She was replaced by Scarlett Johansson.
Luc Besson is back to the Action- Director chair, and this time with his latest Sci-Fi Lucy… in a world that is run by the mob, street gangs, drug addicts, and corrupt cops. Lucy (Scarlett Johansson), a woman living in Taiwan’s Taipei, is forced to work as a drug mule for the mob. The drug implanted in her body inadvertently leaks into her system, changing her into a superhuman, due to accessing much more than the normal 10% of her brain capacity. She can absorb knowledge instantaneously, is able to move objects with her mind, and cannot feel pain or other discomforts! One major announcement was made by the production company EuropaCorp’s CEO Christophe Lambert, that this film had the highest budget in the history of EuropaCorp. He also stated that Luc Besson had never put so many special effects into a movie… besides filming at Taipei 101, one of the world’s tallest skyscrapers! The cast includes along with Johansson, the veteran Morgan Freeman and Egyptian actor Amr Waked who made it internationally since 2005’s Syriana… all promising to unveil out of this very special Sci-Fi a perfect eye-opener!
